EPL: I haven’t spoken to him, we’re sad – Casemiro reacts to Ronaldo’s exit from Man United

Brazil midfielder, Casemiro has spoken for the first time about Cristiano Ronaldo’s issue with Manchester United which has led to the superstar leaving Old Trafford.

According to Casemiro, he and the other players at Old Trafford are ‘sad’ to see the Portugal legend exit the club but believes his former teammate ‘knows what is good for him’.

The Red Devils announced last week that the 5-time Ballon d’Or holder will no longer come back to the club after the World Cup break.

This was after his explosive interview with Piers Morgan where he criticised everything that has to do with Manchester United.

Casemiro joined the Red Devils from Real Madrid last summer, reuniting with Ronaldo following several years together at the Santiago Bernabeu.

“I haven’t exchanged any messages with him but Cristiano is a really experienced guy and knows what’s good for his career,” Casemiro told reporters in Qatar.

“Of course we’re sad, especially in Manchester, because you’re talking about one of the best players in history.

“Cristiano is a grown-up and knows what’s best for him.”
